How Long Will It Take My Dog To Adjust To Doggy Daycare?

The biggest concern for pet owners is having their fur baby adjust to the new environment. Most of the time, dogs’ characteristics allow them to adapt well to social environments, but separation from their owner can create anxiety within them. To combat this hurdle and other challenges, we’ll be looking into how long pups can adjust in a boarding facility.


Your pup will be adapting to its new environment. Of course, there will be generalized time for a pup to find comfort in the first week they spend their time at Miss Emily’s Bed and Biscuit.

Dogs that are a good fit for Miss Emily’s Bed and Biscuit daycare include puppies, adolescent dogs, high-energy breeds, and working dogs. 

For dogs to enjoy Miss Emily’s doggie daycare, a dog must be used to playing with other dogs, both individually and in groups. If your pup is a social butterfly who wants to goof around with every dog they meet and enjoys play sessions, even when multiple dogs are involved, they will probably find daycare a positive experience.  If they are not familiar with multi-dog play, it’s wise to give them opportunities to play in a group setting, starting with small groups and moving to larger groups, assuming they’re enjoy it.

When deciding on going to a dog daycare facility, you need to check if your and your pup’s requirements fill the needs of the dog kennel. By ensuring your pup’s safety, you can help prevent disastrous situations.
So, the next time you leave your pup at a daycare facility, allow these requirements to be met to ensure the best decision possible.
